About Kate

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The services I offer allow your precious pets to receive excellent care, while staying in the comfort of your own home. This is optimal if you also have cats or other small pets that will need care in your absence.

I am knowledgeable as a pet owner as well as a veterinary professional, with over 7 years experience I have over 7 years of experience as a veterinary technician. I'm both reliable and conscientious, and I ensure that every special need is met with love!

Additional Information:

*Experience - 7 years as a veterinary technician, experienced in emergency/critical care.

*Education - Bachelor's degree in Biology, Pre-veterinary, and Equine Facility Management.

Your pup will get lots of play time and special attention while in my care. If I stay in your home, it will be kept clean and fresh, with linens and dishes washed prior to your return.

"Kate house and pet sat for my 4 pets for a week and was wonderful in every respect! Two of my pets have special needs and with her Veterinary background, she was more than qualified to care for them. She is conscientious, detail oriented, and very caring. If you need someone to care for your pet, you could not find a better choice for a caregiver than Kate! I've worked with Kate for about 2 years and am very confident in both her love of animals and her ability to care for them. When the opportunity arose for me to take a vacation, I knew she was the ONLY person I could trust with my special needs pets because of her extensive background as a Veterinary Technician and her attention to detail. I live in Florida, so I flew her down from Ohio to house-sit and pet-sit for a week. Kate took amazing care of my crew of 4 pets including a 16-year-old Diabetic cat who requires medication and injections daily, and 14-year-old dog who requires a lot of care and medications. I came home from vacation to a happy, healthy crew and a clean house. I'd highly recommend Kate for your house-sitting and pet-sitting needs. Your pets will love her and you will not be disappointed!" -Jaclyn C

Kate did a great job watching and taking cares of our pups! She was great to work with and next time we need someone for the dogs we will be calling on her! She went well above and beyond what was expected! Thx! Kelly
Wonderful as always. Kate is the best!
I can't thank Kate enough for watching my kids while we were gone. I never once worried because I knew they were in good hands. I'm so sad that she moved out of my neighborhood because I would use her all the time! :)

Molly, Penelope and Sparky send kisses!

Kate was wonderful, I was nervous about leaving my Luigi at first but after meeting her I knew she would treat him well. She kept me informed at all times and sent me pictures. She treated him like her own. I will definitely use her again.
So thankful to have Kate to watch our dogs! They just love her and she always makes us feel at ease to go away. She's the best!
Another great booking with Kate! Ths time we were gone for a week but we never worried once. We knew our dogs were in great hands!
Another great visit from Kate! She is so good with our dogs! One of them is very shy with people but loves Kate. Kate knows how to make dogs feel comfortable and does a great job taking care of them.
Kate is wonderful! She is a very kind and knowledgable pet sitter. Our dogs were very well cared for and happy. She kept us updated with texts and pictures and we never worried once. I would highly recommend Kate as a trustworthy and reliable caretaker for your furry family members!
